Cute Card Thursday's 1st Birthday

whiff-of-joy-cct-bday-3 Cute Card Thursday is 1 year old this week and to celebrate they are giving away some amazing prizes and the challenge this week is one of Katharina's amazing sketches. Loved working with all the layers and also the tag shape (something I don't often use).

 Jill from The Hobby House sent me a delish Black Market Paper Society 6 x 6 pad - full of teal and chocolate papers that I have been itching to use.I can't see this listed on the website but if you drop her an email I'm sure she will sort you out lol.

I stamped the butterfly on acetate and glittered the backs and popped them up on some silicone to give a bit of movement.  I also cut a heart from the Sizzix Tipsy Hearts die and ran this through the Cuttlebug using a hearts folder then sanded it to show the white core (DCWV card)
 
These papers are so fab to use, all I did for the inside was trim a page down to fit, cut a slit around the "cherish" word and slipped a tag behind then stuck it all down. Easy peasy and so effective.
